Good food, free wifi, not bad prices. Locals and tourists visit. The milkshake looked really good, but alas I was too full. The burger was great.

As a local, Sleepers is our favourite restaurant to visit, throughout the week, as the menu offers so many options. The food and the atmosphere is always great and I would recommend Sleepers to anyone. The quality of food is always consitent and we always leave feeling rather content.

This menu is extensive, we could have eaten here every night for a week and not been bored. Tasty seafood, great wine, welcoming service. It's a very relaxed place, great to go for an easy meal.

Went here for a lunch meeting that lasted way b eyond the meal, but, no problem, no pushy staff trying to sell you more. Food was good, not 5 star but good price vs quality.

Sleepers Restaurant is located in a bit of a bizarre spot, wedged between the petrol station and the train tracks - but don't let that fool you into thinking it's not a nice place to eat! Very affordably priced, and with some fantastic meals on offer, you know you're on the right track when locals are turning up for dinner... More

Sleepers is situated in Hoedspruit and is part of a back dated railway ticket office. Not only is there history behind this resturant but also fantastic food. Owner run , it is the hang out of locals which add a great atmosphere to the already jolly setting. Many a visitor come and dine at this local landmark where stories are... More

Th atmosphere of the old railway station is backed up by a superb quality of food. An amazing selection of food and wine. You may eat indoors or outdoors. The tiny bar is a great place to meet a wonderful range of locals. We had a great birthday party there and the service was wonderful. A great place to eat... More
